    Well, there are some places that you can fix iPod Touches and iPhones, but they cost quite a bit of money. If you have an old iPod Touch, you might as well get a new one.

    The exact thing happened to my iPod. I let its battery COMPLETELY drain and then charged it and it started working. I still have problems though

    Have you tried sun-drying it? Even the tiniest bit of moisture left inside could case electrical interference and short circuits. Also, the touch screen is powered by surface acoustic waves, which means that it is highly sensitive to tiny electrical charges.

    You should have left it in Rice for at least 1 week.
